WE TALK TO GOD THROUGH PRAYER

 

Praises, Joys and Concerns

 

Prayers of the People

Leader:      We are in the wilderness. We have lost our way.  We cannot fix ourselves. We need God’s intervention in our lives. And so do many others. And so we pray:

People:     Come quickly to help us, O God.

Leader:      Because people are still kept in poverty or slavery, some are in fear from abusers, terrorists, and oppressors, some face addiction, and some are targeted for unjust treatment because of who they are;


 

People:     Come quickly to help us, O God.

Leader:      Because we need courage and integrity from leaders in religious, political, economic, and social life; because we love and sometimes struggle with our families, friends, and neighbors; and because the lives of those who sustain and protect our lives as military, civilian workers, and first responders are full of challenge and conflict;

People:     Come quickly to help us, O God.

Leader:      Because there are people who need your healing power, and some who offer healing through their skill and presence; because some have harmed us, and we have harmed others by our action or inaction;

People:     Come quickly to help us, O God.

Leader:      Receive the prayers of your people, most merciful God. In your compassion, forgive our sins, and intervene to free us for joyful obedience through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

SENDING FORTH

 

*Hymn             “Lift Every Voice and Sing”               UMH #519

 

*Dismissal

Pastor:      My friends, we often get it just plain wrong, turned inside out, mistaking evil for good, our comfort for God’s will. We need some serious intervention and then some rehab. And today, right here, God has started and continued that work in you.

                 Jesus is in you.   The Spirit is moving among us, and driving us out of here to continue in and through each of us what the Spirit has gotten started.

                 Go in the peace and with the intervening power of our Triune God. Amen.
